• TL Amadou Fly Dryer

Amadou is a natural material obtained from a certain oak fungus. Is not a simple thing to have it because the fungus raise only in very old forest, usually on trees older than 100 years ( difficult to find in Europe in these days ). The fungus is processed in a special way in more than 60days , is hammered with wood hammers, boiled, left in water with ash until the material get softer and delicate like a velvet. Is dried and and then cut in desired shapes and sheets. It is a lot of hand work in a long period of time but in the end we have a nice piece of handcraft that will save the day especially when you fish with CDC flies!

How to use  the Classic Amadou Fly Dishing Drier:

  • before to use on wet flies be sure that  you washed the fish slim.
  • put  the flies between amadou and squeeze for a few sec
  • the amadou will completely  absorb the water
  • put a drop of CDC oil or gel if you want and the fly will be like new again

  • the patch have a ring to be easy attached to the vest
